Posted:Hi Everybody,

So, I've been quietly putting up some new videos on playpoi.com over the spring. Nothing as paramount as Dervishly Yers, but certainly fun. I've got schemes to make a video that will hopefully be on a whole new level, both artistically and production wise, but it's not so easy to come up with the money and time is it? rolleyes

Note: I've just today added "Unexpected Interview" when somebody said they had already seen all the new videos. It's got some lovely blacklight poi footage, but Camilla made it to mostly be about me. I was shy to release it until now.


Maybe I'm posting this just because I need a hug. hug It's been a bit of a tough year, with having to come up with the studio rent each month. I'd had all these plans for making videos, etc., and it's gone very slowly.

Anyway, let me know what you think. I've got a few more surprises in the works.

Oh, and I'm in the UK from July 12th-27th, for Uberpoi and Falmouth. Then I'm travelling across Canada from mid August to mid september, and will be teaching workshops in a bunch of cities (it will be fun to share everything I learn at Uberpoi). If you're in the USA, you could come up to Toronto maybe? I've been barred from the states for teaching unauthorised poi workshops, so you have to come up to Canada.

Ok, pardon the rambling post.

Love and poi,

Posted:ive never thought about poi as the way to unfold the universe, but i do drop into that zone where people watching disapear, and im left by myself and sound of the fire. ive always compared poi to tai chi, and i was interested to hear you do the same. nice moves, and beautiful studios.

Posted:Pardon the multiple postings, but it has taken me... uh, four years to realize that I can keep using the same thread for my videos, and simply change the title of the thread when I have a new video that I'm all excited about. I'm now going back to previous threads, and announcing that the thread you want to subscribe to is my My Official Poi Video Thread... if you like my videos, that is.

And on that note, there are new videos!

Love to all ubbrollsmile
